UNC proves its Achilles heel is not on defense

For everyone hoping indifferent defense might be the Achilles' (Tar) Heel in UNC's title drive, we have this sobering update: Carolina pitched a shutout for the final 5 minutes, 41 seconds Saturday night. Against Duke. At Cameron Indoor. That's how you go from 68-66 behind to 76-68 ahead at the final horn of this endlessly compelling rivalry. And that's how you go from just one of seven or eight national title contenders to the official NCAA Tournament favorite. (ESPN.com)
